Penn St 9

Miami 11

Washington 12 (out)

Play-In Round 3Games: (No Shares) Loser not in Playoff, could goto Bowl Game. Winner in Playoff Bracket and earns 1 Share.

For 10 seed  Troy 35 vs UCF 10

For 11 seed: FAU 31 vs Miami 11

For 12 seed: Toledo 28 vs Boise 25

Play-In: At home of Higher Ranked Team

1st Round Playoff / 2nd Round Matchup

Penn St 9 vs USC 8  / Clemson 1

12 Seed Above vs Ohio St 5 / Alabama 4

11 Seed Above vs Wisconsin 6 / Georgia 3

10 Seed Above vs Auburn 7 / Oklahoma 2

1st Round Games - Home of Higher Ranked Team

2nd Round Games - Bowl Sites

3rd Round - Final 4 Site

Championship Site

Financial Shares:  awarded to Conferences

Spots 1-12:  1 Share each (12 Shares)

1 Share awarded for each win (11 Shares)

Total Playoff Shares = 23

Benefits:

Each FBS conference has an Avenue to the Champioship via Play-In Games. Bottom 6 Teams Of 15 Play-In.

128 teams competing for a national championship, not 4.

This Playoff would generate huge mo

Top 4 Ranked Teams only need to win 3 games to be Champion. Get Bye to 2nd Round.

Revenue can be earned by Smaller Conferences.  Distributes outside P5. At least 2 G5 Conferences will earn $ shares each year. Creates competition.

Uses same Committee Ranking system in place today. 

Fyi: I would eliminate Conf Championship Games, just play 12 game schedule to select Champs.

Solution:

8 team playoff. 5 autobids from the P5 conferences and 3 at large bids. Teams like Ohio St get rewarded for winning their conference Championship game in a P5 conference and teams like Alabama get rewarded for having a great season but failed to win their conference. Plus fans get 4 more real college football playoff games. Everybody wins!!

See 12 Team Playoff.  This 8 Team format sucks.  No diversity

Have a playoff system like this and FCS teams won’t hesitate to move up. The current system of 4 is a joke, and even 8 teams will be a bigger joke if more g5 teams go undefeated only to be left out in favor of another p5 team.

What “season” is this ruining?  The playoff isn’t a season, it’s game or two.  It’s Clemson vs Alabama every year.  Oh the drama in that.  This would include top teams and all champions.

So you advocate that the FCS playoff is . . . 

JMU vs Central Arkansas

NDSU vs. Jacksonville St

Winners decide it!

The current FCS playoff is gross and ruins FCS football?  That’s your opinion?

All the same bowl games would still exist. Round one/two of the playoffs could be done as bowl games, just like today.

The FBS regular season as a whole would be ruined. Half the fun is that many big games are basically playoff games. (Notre Dame knocked out USC, Miami knocked out Notre Dame, Clemson knocked out Miami, etc.)

I don't know about the FCS playoffs. A 6-5 team has gotten an At-large bid in the past. 7-4 teams get in often. That's ridiculous.

That is what people said about having any playoff. It has been proven false......by a country mile.

There are 130 FBS teams total. The NCAA standard for size of playoff fields is 25% of the total number of schools sponsoring the sport. That would make 32 the cut-off for FBS. So even a 16 team playoff would be well below the threshhold.

Even if it is easier to get in, teams are still going to fight for the best seed they can possibly get.

What really degrades the almighty regular season is having 40+ bowl games and running out of 6 win teams to put in them.

4 is perfect. Keep it exclusive. 

 

I think they should get rid of about half the bowls but I dont let it bug me.
